I’m feeling sad. We had some wonderful years enjoying the work of my favourite art director Erik Vervroegen from TBWA/Paris. The years he spoiled us with the work for Aides, the French Aids info organisation. Last year he left TBWA and went to Goodby, Silverstein & Partners.
Remember My sweet lollipop or Explore, just protect yourself? The Aides campaigns will never be the same.
The battle against Aids goes on and now we have to watch new work made by another team.
Without the Aides history I would say “great work TBWA”, and “good storyline”.
This year: looking back in someone’s life can educate us. We can learn and make other decisions. Like using a condom.
